The name of Joanna (Goldie Hawn)'s luxury yacht in the movie was the "SS Immaculata". The boat was portrayed by the vessel "Attessa" and was also used for the film Indecent Proposal (1993). DVD sleeve notes have said "the 130ft Stayton yacht, bedecked in crystal chandeliers and velvet cheetah upholstery, was docked in Fort Bragg's Noyo Harbor". The vessel had a Kong & Halvorsen hull from 1984, was called "Yecats" at the time Overboard (1987) was filmed, was renamed "Huntress" at some time, had a small helipad on the aft deck, and was later lengthened to 142 feet. The Kong & Halvorsen '130' 'Yecats' yacht was later destroyed in a fire but the crew and passengers all survived. See more »

I like this film, and it has many memorable moments. The hose scene, and Russel's antics. This is a great movie, Russel does comedy perfectly. He can play the all American, guy next store better than anyone else. This movie is a tribute to his acting ability. I can watch this one over and over. 8/10
